What is InfraGard?

The InfraGard program is a public/private cooperative effort dedicated to improving our national security. InfraGard consists of Chapters throughout the United States and has thousands of members. The FBI leads the U.S. Government side of InfraGard.

The private sector side of InfraGard is led by a non-profit corporation, the InfraGard National Members Alliance, which consists of local InfraGard Members Alliances (IMAs) throughout the country. An InfraGard “Chapter” refers to the local FBI, the local IMA, and the local InfraGard members working together. “InfraGard” is a registered service mark of the FBI.

President’s Message

Philip Siegel, President InfraGard Los Angeles

As we get close to the end of the FBI recertification of all of the Infragard members, we welcome the reopening of the FBI/Infragard online Portal at www.Infragard.org. It has been many months and a lot of hard work revalidating all of the Infragard members, and we thank the entire FBI, particularly our local Los Angeles Division members, for their hard work in this regard.

Our Infragard Los Angeles training program continues to provide frequent training opportunities and briefings, contractor provided classes as well as FBI and other US Government agency briefings. These training classes and briefings have made Infragard LA a leader among the almost 80 national Infragard chapters. Over the past three years, since the Covid pandemic forced a pivot to virtual training, we have provided over 150 classes and trained over 30,000 people. We have started doing in-person training events again, since it’s important for us to meet and establish personal relationships with each other, and actually shake hands. We are limited only by the availability of venues, so if you have a facility that could host of one our events, please let us know.

It is very important that the members of InfraGard participate in our events, log into the InfraGard Portal to receive current intelligence information from the FBI and other US Government agencies, and take advantage of the opportunities we provide for you. If you have suggestions for additional training events that we have not covered, please let us know.

If you would like to become more involved in our LA chapter, we encourage you to apply to be a Sector Chief or co-Sector Chief. As you know, there are 16 Infrastructure Sectors in the U.S., and LA has added additional ones for Education and Faith Based Venues. If you would like to learn more about that program, please see the ‘Sectors’ tab on this website. Please feel free to reach out to contact us for any additional information or suggestions at Info@Infragardlosangeles.org.

85% of America’s critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR) are owned by the private sector, but law enforcement is charged with protecting them in order to keep our country functioning. The need for a partnership between CIKR stakeholders and law enforcement is obvious and critical. lnfraGard Los Angeles provides a vehicle for that partnership through a trusted forum for the exchange of information pertinent to CIKR protection. InfraGard members operate in all 16 DHS Critical Infrastructure Sectors as well as Los Angeles region-specific ones.
